I AGREE THAT EVENT PHOTOGRAPHS THAT INCLUDE MY IMAGE MAY BE USED IN PROMOTIONAL ITEMS FOR SCAR IN THE PRESENT AND FUTURE.

I AM AWARE THAT THE SCAR LAKES ARE IN REMOTE AREAS AND THAT IMMEDIATE MEDICAL CARE MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE. I UNDERSTAND A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF TIME WOULD BE REQUIRED TO TRANSPORT ME TO A HOSPITAL OR EMERGENCY MEDICAL CARE FACILITY IN THE EVENT SUCH CARE WAS REQUIRED.

Having carefully read the above waiver and all event risks being known and appreciated by me (and my child) and in consideration of my application and permitting me (or my child) to participate in this event and all activities incident thereto; I hereby take action for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf as follows: (A) WAIVE, RELEASE AND DISCHARGE FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FROM MY DEATH, DISABILITY, PERSONAL INJURY, PROPERTY THEFT OR ACTIONS OF ANY KIND WHICH MAY HEREAFTER ACCRUE TO ME INCLUDING MY TRAVELING TO AND FROM THIS EVENT, THE FOLLOWING PERSONS OR ENTITIES: Kent M.
